    Question about 301 redirect and backlinks

    Hi friends,

    I have an unused site, which I built a few years ago backlinks. This site is well positioned for its authority, when that I knew nothing of anchor text, or issues related to links. It was a page in Italian positioned well for the keywords that I put in the title tag. I guess it would be by the authority of the links, because if I changed the words, automatically position it well for those other new words.

    I have now I put AdSense on that page to monetize, but did not win much with it, less than 1 euro per day.

    Let me know if I make a 301 redirect to another site of mine, the authority of the backlinks for the domain be transferred.

    I do not know if I explained very well, my English is not too good.

    There is some loss of Page Rank via a 301 redirect according to Matt Cutts.

    And I think that the site you redirect to should be relevant to the original site topic.

    p.s. 1 Euro per day is ok by me for an abandoned site, it still easily covers hosting costs and pays some bills.

    Thank for your reply.

    Ok, Pagerank loss, but authority? Also loss authority?

    Certainly, since it is a different website and if PR is degraded then so will SE prominence (authority).

    But your other site will have it's own authority that could be improved by the extra link juice that you are sending to it.

    Thank you very much for responding, I'd better spend time on that website, because the benefit does not compensate me.

    As I see PR loses for now, but it's already not important at all
